This is a ground breaking and long overdue book that proposes a variety of innovative and practical strategies to address relevant issues for African American men in micro-practice approaches, such as individual, couple, family, and group treatment issues as well as macropractice approaches, such as policy formulation, program development, and community practice. This well documented book is informed by the authors' years of qualitative research and their considerable years of clinical experience with African American men.
